Modi to lay foundation of Ayodhya temple at Babri Masjid site on Aug 5

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the Ayodhya temple next month, in a highly anticipated ceremony at a holy site, which was once a 460-year-old mosque. The Indian Supreme Court ruled in November last year that a temple could be built in Ayodhya, where Hindu zealots demolished the Mughal era Babri Masjid [mosque] in 1992.
